Protractor Timeout Ubuntu (Linux)

Life’s Good right now, I just joined an amazing team and I’m working on a huge Angularjs project. This project is what I’ve been looking for some time now. I get to work with my favourite OS Ubuntu and get to work with the latest web application technology.

After cloning the project onto my Ubuntu dev machine, I ran into the following problem when running protractor tests:
Error: Timed out waiting for the WebDriver server at http://0.0.0.0:1000/

This timeout issue only seemed to occur on Ubuntu machines, on Mac OS this was not an issue. Anyway after weeks of investigation I found a solution. The solution is quite simple all you need to add to your protract config file is the following:

allScriptsTimeout: 110000, 
chromeOnly: true

That’s it, no more timeouts.
